* SoBadItsGood: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-1pJYR2MjPk This Nintendo Power ad]] for the game, which also introduced the concept of the Rumble Pak. Whether it's the [[LargeHam overdone acting]], the fact that they gave the Creator/{{Sony}} and Creator/{{Sega}} actors an [[EvilLaugh evil laugh]], or the parts where [[EvilIsPetty they torture a Mario doll]], there no doubt this is a bad commercial. But in this case, [[EvilIsHammy the cheesiness]] is what makes the ad [[NarmCharm so awesome]].
* SoCoolItsAwesome: Pretty much everyone agrees this is the best game in the franchise and one of the best 3D space shooters ever.

* SoBadItsGood: The dialogue and voice acting are hilariously cheesy.

** Solar. What can you say about a level that is so hot, your energy is constantly decreasing? Even getting your health boost mid-level won't help, as it'll keep going down. You can limit the health loss by flying as high up as the game allows, but that makes it harder to hit enemies for the medal, and even then, your health's still going down anyway. More often than not, by the time you get to the boss, you'll be hanging on with half health or less, and it's got screen-filling attacks...

More often than not, by Reaching the time you get to the boss, you'll be hanging on boss with half a comfortable level of health or less, requires shooting as many rocks that boil up from the lava as possible (as these almost always cough up health) and staying high at the top of the screen - it's got screen-filling attacks...a bit of a balancing act.

Added DiffLines:

* ToughActToFollow: The rest of the franchise has been in this game's shadow. Attempts at [[VideoGame/StarFoxAdventures breaking new ground]] or in [[VideoGame/StarFoxZero revisiting the main beats of this game]] have [[ContestedSequel both come up short.]]

*** Fichina's problem with getting a high score is an actual lack of targets. It's arguably the easiest medal in the game; the necessary score is so low, beating Star Wolf gets you almost all of the hits you need.

* ScrappyMechanic: If you don't like how they control, the non-Arwing levels can be frustrating as all buggery. The Blue-Marine has unlimited torpedoes, but due to being a sub, it controls much more slowly than the Arwing, and Aquas's enemies don't help. The Landmaster can be hard to hit enemies with, especially if they're airborne (Unless you use a bomb or charge a shot in advance).

* AudioErotica: The racoon tutor in the remake. '''Holy crap.'''


Added DiffLines:

* BestBossEver: Any time you fight Star Wolf: a challenging dog fight against an evil mercenary team whose abilities match and later surpasses your own team's. It's not uncommon for players to take the Blue route through Fichina, then changing to the Red route to go to Venom through Area 6 just to fight Star Wolf ''twice''.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The redubbed voice acting in the 3DS remake received this reaction for being inferior to the original. The backlash intensified with the revelation that the voice actors would carry over into the fourth installment of ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros''.
